mata (jpm2873) – HW #7 – Antoniewicz – (57420) 1 This print-out should have 19 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001(part1of2)10.0points A 1930 kg car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly to 18 . 9 m / s in 19 s . Find the average power developed by the engine. Assume that air resistance remains constant at 397 N during this time. Correct answer: 29 . 3487 hp. Explanation: Let : m = 1930 kg , v i = 0 m / s , v f = 18 . 9 m / s , and Δ t = 19 s . The acceleration of the car is a = v f - v i Δ t = v f Δ t = 18 . 9 m / s 19 s = 0 . 994737 m / s 2 and the constant forward force due to the engine is found from summationdisplay F = F engine - F air = m a F engine = F air + m a = 397 N + (1930 kg) ( 0 . 994737 m / s 2 ) = 2316 . 84 N . The average velocity of the car during this interval is v av = v f + v i 2 , so the average power output is P = F engine v av = F engine parenleftBig v f 2 parenrightBig = (2316 . 84 N) parenleftbigg 18 . 9 m / s 2 parenrightbigg parenleftbigg 1 hp 746 W parenrightbigg = 29 . 3487 hp . 002(part2of2)10.0points Find the instantaneous power output of the engine at t = 19 s just before the car stops accelerating. Correct answer: 58 . 6975 hp. Explanation: The instantaneous velocity is 18 . 9 m / s and the instantaneous power output of the engine is P = F engine v f = (2316 . 84 N)(18 . 9 m / s) parenleftbigg 1 hp 746 W parenrightbigg = 58 . 6975 hp . 003(part1of2)10.0points On the way to the moon, the Apollo astro- nauts reach a point where the Moon’s gravi- tational pull is stronger than that of Earth’s. Find the distance of this point from the center of the Earth. The masses of the Earth and the Moon are 5 . 98 × 10 24 kg and 7 . 36 × 10 22 kg, respectively, and the distance from the Earth to the Moon is 3 . 84 × 10 8 m. Correct answer: 3 . 45653 × 10 8 m. Explanation: Let : M e = 5 . 98 × 10 24 kg , m m = 7 . 36 × 10 22 kg , and R e = 3 . 84 × 10 8 m . Consider the point where the two forces are equal. If r e is the distance from this point to the center of the Earth and r m is the distance from this point to the center of the Moon, then G m M e r 2 e = G m M m r 2 m r 2 m r 2 e = M m M e r m r e = radicalbigg M m M e .

The value of the universal gravitational constant is 6 . 672 × 10 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 . Correct answer: 0 . 00333946 m / s 2 . Explanation: a = F m = G M e r 2 e a = (6 . 672 × 10 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 ) × 5 . 98 × 10 24 kg (3 . 45653 × 10 8 m) 2 = 0 . 00333946 m / s 2 . 005(part1of2)10.0points Given: G = 6 . 67259 × 10 11 N m 2 / kg 2 . A 609 kg geosynchronous satellite or- bits a planet similar to Earth at a radius 1 . 91 × 10 5 km from the planet’s center. Its angular speed at this radius is the same as the rotational speed of the Earth, and so they ap- pear stationary in the sky. That is, the period of the satellite is 24 h .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
